Using a device that analyzes an image from a camera installed above a takoyaki machine in real time and converts the pattern of takoyaki into sound, a loop of music is created using a 7 x 8 grid matching how the takoyaki are being cooked. The analytical program was made by programmer and artist Takehisa Mashimo, and it is a media piece combining food and music by converting the process of cooking takoyaki into art.
